What to do When Arrested

  • Do not resist, even if you believe the arrest is unfair.
  • Say you wish to remain silent and ask for an attorney immediately
  • Don’t give any excuses or explanations to law enforcement. DON’T SAY ANYTHING, SIGN ANYTHING, OR MAKE ANY DECISIONS WITHOUT AN ATTORNEY.
  • You ahve the right to make a phone call to an attorney without the police listening. If you call anyone other than an attorney the police will be listening. What you say will be used against you.
